    The Washington "Bravehearts"????

    Dan Snyder neighbor trademarks 'Washington Bravehearts' name

    A neighbor of Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has registered the name Washington Bravehearts for use for “entertainment in the nature of football games.”

    Snyder’s wealthy buddy and Potomac, Md., neighbor Aris Mardirossian registered the trademark and launched “Washington Brave Hearts LLC” on Oct. 17, TMZ first reported.

    That use of the phrase “ENTERTAINMENT SERVICES IN THE FORM OF PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL GAMES AND EXHIBITIONS” filed with the United States Patent and Trademark office is raising eyebrows.

    It’s close to the exact language used in the trademark registrations for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    A Snyder spokesman denied a name change was afoot.

    “There is no connection between the Washington Redskins and the trademark application,” said a team spokesman. “Dan Snyder does not know the man named in the story.”

    Snyder and Mardirossian worked together in a lawsuit against the National Park Service in a fight to chop down trees in front of their homes, a request that was denied. Snyder wanted to chop 130 trees in front of his Potomac riverfront estate in 2005.

    The official trademark registration for the Washington Redskins, filed Sept. 11, 1972, says it is for “entertainment services – namely, presentations of professional football contests.”

    This doesn’t mean that the Redskins are on the verge of a name change. But it is curious timing given the controversy surrounding the racial aspect of the “Redskins” name in recent months.

    President Obama weighed in earlier this month saying he would likely change the name if he was the Redskins’ owner and the Oneida Indian Nation held a protest in the District earlier this month when NFL owners were in town for meetings.

    So if they change the Washington Redskins name, does that mean all of the high schools and colleges have to change as well?

    Sounds like a neighbor who is trying to cash in on something he may have heard. Will probably turn out to be a waste of time...there have been way better names proposed.

    Greed...these rich guys can never get enough...look at how much this franchise is worth and how much Snyder would be in for buying the rights back. Thats a multimillion dollar deal. No way Snyder himself would of sought out this guy to register the name for him...makes no sense as a businessman and Snyder may be a shitty owner, but one hell of a businessman

    That's what I'm saying. This guy isn't doing this on a whim. He's doing it for a reason.
